In a bid support local schoolchildren’s environmental studies, pupils at an east Cambridgeshire primary school have been gifted a new wild flower book.
Written by local author Molly Dyson and illustrated by Ann Biggs, Wayside Flowers of Haddenham was written in a bid to educate others.
Ms Briggs said: “During recent months many of us have been walking our local footpaths and open spaces and seeing and enjoying new things in the natural world.
“Wayside Flowers of Haddenham focuses on what is growing in and around the village. Each plant is illustrated by local professional illustrator, Ann Biggs.”
The text is written by Ms Dyson, a long-time wild flower enthusiast who began her fascination with wild flowers as a child on walks with her grandmother.
